It’s a big year for Alfa Romeo, 100 years in the business and to celebrate, Italian car design firm Pininfarina, which is turning 80 has revealed its take on a new Alfa Romeo Spider at this year’s Geneva Motorshow.
The Alfa Romeo Spider has been one of Alfa’s biggest models to date and the company believes it has defined the marque for more than half its history.
Pininfarina is not new to Alfa Romeo designs either with the company being involvement for some time.
Labelled the Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta concept, the car is not just a pretty face but meant to be an exciting drive and if looks are anything to go by it’s not hard to see how!
If you’re wondering what on earth 2uettottanta means, Alfa Romeo says it evokes the legendary Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto but is also a very Italian product.
The Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta Concept certainly looks the part with a very sophisticated take on a modern sports car.
Pininfarina believes it represents an innovative approach, projected into the third millennium, to a topic that is firmly rooted in Pininfarina history, the 2-seater spider.
The idea is a “simple 2-seater”, which is powered by a 1750 cc turbo engine positioned longitudinally, which Alfa says is an obvious reference to the “1750 Veloce” of 1968, one of the many versions derived from the famous “Osso di Seppia” (Cuttlefish).
The Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta is 1797 mm wide, 4212.6 mm long, 1280 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2500 mm.
